Marvin Sapp apears on ABC's "Sound of Freedom - A Juneteenth Celebration." In recognition of both Juneteenth and Black Music Month, this is a one-hour primetime special on Friday, June 17. The special airs at 8/7c. Sapp performs his new single "All In Your Hands" for the first time on network television. The incomparable Patti LaBelle and the electrifying Jon Batiste also deliver spine-tingling performances.

Sponsored by GEICO and hosted by country music star Jimmie Allen, "Sound of Freedom - A Juneteenth Celebration" brings together a mix of live performances and conversations with some of music's biggest stars to highlight the contributions of Black Americans through jazz, gospel, hip-hop and more.

"It is an honor to be a part of this special," says Sapp. "The ancestry of the Black community is steeped in music. Throughout history, songs have been a source of survival, an expression of hope and a profession of faith. Our musical expressions are vast and can fortify the spirit like no other. I applaud ABC for producing a special that highlights our musical offerings."

"Sound of Freedom - A Juneteenth Celebration" is co-executive produced by Catherine McKenzie and Quiana Burns. ABC News' "Soul of a Nation" was created by Marie Nelson, senior vice president, Integrated Content Strategy, ABC News. This is the third year in a row that ABC News is producing a special to honor the history of Juneteenth.
